Wow, this looks like a dream. The color of the sky, location, his outfit, his energy are all so incredible
Elvis Presley’s first concert in Hawaii took place on November 10, 1957, at the Honolulu Stadium. It was a highly anticipated event, as Elvis was already a huge star at the time and this was his first time performing in Hawaii.
The concert was part of a benefit show called the “Show of Stars” which was organized to raise funds for the construction of a Pearl Harbor memorial. The event was broadcast live on local radio stations and drew a crowd of over 20,000 people.
Elvis performed a number of his hits, including “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Hound Dog,” and “All Shook Up.” He also introduced some new material, including the song “Don’t,” which had been released earlier that year and was quickly becoming a hit.
The concert was a huge success, both artistically and financially. It helped cement Elvis’s status as a superstar and also raised over $50,000 for the Pearl Harbor memorial fund. It was the beginning of a long love affair between Elvis and Hawaii, as he would return to the islands several times over the course of his career for concerts and filming of movies such as “Blue Hawaii”.
